i like it better as well. the helmet is dumb though. i love how the nike rep is trying to sell the public that wearing these uni's will help an individual play "fast" b/c that is the direction football is going. really? thanks.

that these new jerseys are made out of cotton (100%) and they shrink in the wash prior to the game a la Seinfeld's "The Chaperone."

Sean McDonough: And the Buckeyes take the field.

Matt Millen: And what is with the Buckeyes? They look like they're having trouble running. They can't move.

McDonough: It's their uniforms, they're too tight. They've shrunk. They're running like penguins. Forget this game.

Millen: Oh my God, Pryor just split his pants.

Rich Rodriguez: That's a shame.

Does anyone else really wish we had stuck with Nike over Adidas? Admittedly I'm a huge Nike fan, but I'm pretty jealous of all the Nike sponsored schools getting all this awesome new gear. Plus, this may or may not be true but someone told me that recruits are attracted to schools sponsored by Nike for this reason.

That is a big reason why some players are choosing to play at Oregon. The over 3 million jersey combinations has a draw to some. I dont know how UM alum would handle an alternate jersey for any of our games. There was a big enough stink when Adidas brought out our current road uni.

I heard a lot of the players hate the shoes that they have to wear. A lot of the line is complaining about their ankles rolling. Hopefully a good thing for us.

The best news regarding OSU's unis is that it will probably take Pryor till at least middle of the third to realize they are wearing the same uniform he is. Big advantage for us.

On a related note, Justin Boren has announced that he will be replacing his usual gameday leopard-skin panties with a cranberry silk number from Victoria Secret.


November 18th, 2009 at 5:25 PM ^ the uniforms are still HANDS DOWN the ugliest f'ing things I have ever laid eyes on (and that includes the 5'10", 85 lb., toothless Crypt-Keeper clone "chick" I saw at a Jackyl concert in Shreveport, LA)!!!

...with all of their lame buckeye stickers? It just won't be the same if we're not playing a team that looks like a flock of seagulls had massive diarrhea all over their glittery helmets.

The "Team Nike" comments referenced above are apt.

I also hate how all of their stuff is incredibly heinous. diamondplate patterns on football uniforms is sooooo XFL.

I actually like the Oregon Unis from when Joey Harrington was there.

Nike makes money off selling merch, especially replica jerseys. Having a team change unis every few years (or in Oregon's case, multiple times per year) is money in the bank for them.
